(Photo by Julio Aguilar/Getty Images)UCF is 9-0, and needs only two more wins to record a second-straight undefeated regular season. Overall, the Knights have won 22 in a row.This weekend, they will face their first ranked opponent of the season in the form of No. 19 Cincinnati. The game will decide the AAC East, with the winner making the conference title game.Additionally, ESPN’s College GameDay will be in Orlando on Saturday for the game. It will be a major national showcase for the program.However, at least one college football analyst thinks the Knights are ripe to be upset. CBS Sports’ Ben Kercheval is calling for Cincinnati to win the gameHere’s why:Lost within all the chatter about the “national champions” and getting no love from the playoff committee is the accomplishment of having won 22 straight games. That is unthinkably hard and a streak that will eventually end. UCF has flirted with it a couple of times already and it’s just a more vulnerable team than a year ago.You can see the rest of Kercheval’s Week 12 picks and analysis here.UCF and Cincinnati will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Maria Taylor will be on the broadcast.last_img
